About Space City Con
Space City Con is a pop and fan culture family entertainment expo for all ages, of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, literature, and art, in the spirit of the Gulf Coast and the greater Houston, Texas, region. Envisioned as a “geek festival with free parking,” it offers the best convention possible for current generations of fans, and instills a love of comics, cosplay, sci-fi and fantasy in the next generations. Space City Con is about “bringing fans together.” Launched in August 2012, Space City Con (
), thrilled more than 2,000 fans with its first show. By summer 2013, the convention had grown by a factor of six, filling its Houston-area venue to capacity with more than 11,000 eager fans attending over three days. The Festival’s vendor and exhibit hall grew 50 percent and the number of celebrity guests skyrocketed. On July 31, 2013, organizers provided the celebrity guests for the historic unveiling of the original Star TrekTM series scale prop, the Galileo shuttlecraft, at Space Center Houston, with a VIP dignitary tour of the NASA Johnson Space Center. Space City Con 2013 also received the honor of the world premiere of the completed Lucasfilm-blessed Star WarsTM fan film “The Pink Five Saga,” hosting the international leadership of The 501st Legion professional Star Wars costuming charity organization.

Moving to the Island
Seeing crowds of eager fans at the convention’s summer show in August 2013, organizers immediately sought a larger venue to accommodate the high traffic. Celebrity guest Tracy Scoggins urged organizers to move to her home town, Galveston Island. A magical vacation destination, with a variety of family-friendly events throughout the year, Galveston embraced the concept of a “hometown comic con” and responded in kind with its legendary hospitality. Given a difficult choice between several excellent convention facilities, Space City Con chose Moody Gardens, to offer plenty of free parking for attendees, but most of all, for the unique landscape appeal of the tropical resort and three pyramids, which will attract and amaze a global comic and sci-fi fandom, already booking hotel rooms and headed for Texas.
